note to self to add to page once there is actual content: an item that is a talisman cannot be bonded if it already has an owner (ie, a quest reward).

I've already taken care of this on the magical talisman page. --Chat 23:12, 18 June 2009 (UTC)


I think I remember seeing somewhere that if you delude and bond an item of furniture, that stops it from being stolen. True? False? Completely mad? --Ilde 04:15, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Weird edit

I reverted an edit changing it to:

Failure (item is not bonded to anybody)
In your mind's eye you sense it thumbing its nose at you.
Which doesn't make sense because it would work if not bonded to anybody.
Failure (item has previously been bonded to somebody)
In your mind's eye you sense it nodding impatiently at you.
Which doesn't make sense because either it's bonded now or it's not, previously doesn't matter.

The first case means you just fail to cast the spell and the item remains unbonded. The second case means you fail to bond the item, because it has previously been bonded to somebody, and you cannot overwrite that. Can you find a better way to phrase it?

Ok I think I got it. I did some more testing, it's indeed a different message if the item is already bonded to the person targeted by the spell versus bonded to someone other than the target.
